Sounding Thunder

July 23, 2018

Toronto Summer Music Festival

Musicians from Festival of the Sound featuring James Campbell, clarinet

Composed by Tim Corlis and written by Ojibwe poet Armand Garnet Ruffo, Sounding Thunder is a complex work divided into three acts, exploring Pegahmagabow’s early years immersed in the world of the Anishinaabe spirits, his extraordinary accomplishments in the trenches of WWI, and finally his political life as Chief of the Wausauksing Ojibwe and founder of the early Indigenous political moment in Canada. Sounding Thunder is produced and commissioned by Festival of the Sound.
